The Mirador Roc del Quer is an extended platform out into the valley with a sculpture of a bronze man sitting on the end of a girder. Art and engineering combine to make a natural and man made spectacle.
You will have seen it high up above Canillo village if you staying there or skiing there.
Perfect for a morning or afternoon stroll for young and old: 5/10 mins walk from the car park - get a fantastic view of the Canillo valley, or alternatively double-check you still get vertigo.
Certainly open in the summer; check access in winter - the mayor of canillo pronounced that it would be open in winter too, at the opening ceremony - but best to check with these things; heavy snowfall will block the road and access path for sure.
Look for the sign for the Mirador "Viewpoint" in Canillo town on the roundabout for the CS240 to Ordino near the Total petrol station - if it is green "Obert"; it means it is accessible (sometimes the road is closed due to snow), then you good to go. Not on the Google streetview yet but is here.
Often the CS240 is closed further up, and you may see a "closed" signal further up - this is because the road goes further up and over the mountain to the North Valley and the village of Ordino.
You should drive up, or be prepared for a long hike. There is a sign at the top for a path to the village so it must be possible to walk it.
The road climbs up the valley side with several hairpin turns and an elevated valley - beautiful.
You will see the car park on the left hand side. Most often (Spanish-style) if it is not too busy people will just park nearer the entrance on the main road; there are a few spots closer to the path if you fancy risking it.
There is a 5metre wide earth track from the main road to the platform that extends out into the valley. It is about 500 metres from the road. It is a little bumpy in places, has drainage channels and has rocky parts; this might affect those who have difficulty walking or on wheeled transport like child buggies.
If it is still icy or snowy in parts this can be a bit treacherous too - watch out for melted snow/ice and shadows from the sun which would make the terrain very slippy.
When you arrive at the road end there is a pretty impressive art installation of wooden trunks that are grey, dry and weather-worn from the blasting sun and cold. They look like giant totem-poles, but are actually a commemoration of the 25 years of the Andorra Social Security System (CASS)!
As you walk down toward the main installation there are benches to rest on and take in the views, and bronze picture-frame installations with empty panels; where you can pose or just capture the beauty of the mountains.
The main installation is breathtaking, and features glass panels in the floor; just a few and little bit dirty and scratched, but who cares; you can look down by the side of it, or over the end. It extends maybe 15m straight into the valley.
At then end sits a huge bronze man in relaxed-pose dangling his feet off the end of the structure contemplating the view and the nature he can see before him.
There is a large car park around 100m from the access point without any sidewalk. People do just walk on the roads here; you might be advised to drop off anyone with less mobility then go park and walk back.
If it is not busy there are a few spaces closer, alternatively just do like the locals do and park on the main road! We have a very relaxed attitude to parking here.

The Palarine Hotel/Bamboo Restaurant, is a welcoming place to stay and eat in Andorra. The hotel welcomes skiers, mostly from the UK & Ireland, and the restaurant/bar is hub of expat life.
Graham is the friendly manager/landord and together with his chinese wife Maria they expertly run the Palarine (and the bamboo restaurant).
The chinese food is excellent and unique in this part of the world - other chinese restaurants in the area (of which there are very few anyway) serve nothing like it. Well known and respected, locals come all the way from La Vella and La Massana to enjoy the food.
There is a "english pub" atmosphere to the place (without the cigarette smoke), as many of the local british expats tend to often congregate here. Big screen TVs play important sports games.
From 22nd July 2017 until 30th July 2017 the Hotel Panorama is hosting the 35th Andorra Chess Open.
This event is open to licensed Chess players from anywhere in the world. We expect around 140 players from around the world to attend; including many Grand Masters.
Families and accompanying persons are welcome to come, and will benefit from discounts and laid on activities by the Federation.
For more information please see the tournament site. http://open.escacsandorra.com

One of the six main ski stations in the Grandvalira ski-resort - the others being Grau Roig, Funicamp (from Encamp), Soldeu, Pas de la Casa and El Tarter.
You take the 6 person cable car up from the village itself (not free parking in Canillo). It has a ski school, medical clinic, restaurant complex and large sun terrace with play park.
There are only a couple of pistes terminating here, and a couple of chair-lifts - but the aspect is perfect as it is south facing.
